The alarm clock app from Google is literally just another app to download to give you ads, suck your money away and it is all around not helpful for me. I feel like I am not the only person who thinks this. I've always used pandora alarm because it was simple, easy to use, over all pretty handy. Again the alarm clock from Google isn't as good as the normal one button feature in the pandora app. Why need an entirely new app to do just this one thing. Waste of time and phone space.

Welcome to the community! 🎧
Can we please talk about how garbage the Google app is for the Pandora alarm functionality? I loved the previous app, but the Google one is horrible.
You can't set a volume ramp up to where it starts softly and gets louder. IDEAL for waking up to, but nope, that's gone.
No matter HOW MANY TIMES I set the volume, it RESETS to FULL BLAST. Even if I snooze it and lower the volume, it STILL comes back full force. I set it in the alarm settings, nothing. I turn the global volume down on my phone, nothing. I snooze it in the morning and then turn it back down, NOTHING.
Even just for the other purposes of using the Google alarm app, it's just a garbage app. I'd rather wake up to the sound of a fire alarm than this anymore...
Please bring back the alarm clock. It is the reason I liked pandora best out of all the other music apps. I relied on it to wake me up and now it's gone. I loved waking up to my favorite artist .
Bring the alarm back! It says we can use Google Clock, but I have that and both it and Pandora are up to date. But there is no option to select Pandora.
Just bring back the alarm feature, or I'll figure out how to downgrade to the superior version of the app when it was still present.
This morning was a perfect example of why I vastly preferred the previous version. I woke up this morning to an annoying beeping and a message alleging that the tablet couldn't connect to Pandora. Baloney, my wifi was.solid and I listened to Pandora the night before. Back in the day a song would come on softly and the volume would pick up until I turned off the alarm or set.it to wake me up a bit later.
Seriously Pandora. I explicitly do not have Spotify because I have loved Pandora so much. Why in God's name would you remove the alarm clock!? How hard can it be to keep the great features you had. FYI this is also why I NEVER update my app!!. Put the alarm back and Stat away from the hacker aka Google. I'm removing everything Google from my phone and PC. So you plan really doesn't work. Keep it great 👍
The Google clock app is such trash! The least they could do is match the functionality of the Pandora alarm features. The main thing I miss is the ability to ramp the volume up when the alarm goes off so it's not so jarring when I wake up. On top of that, I connect my phone to a bluetooth speaker so that it plays through the speaker when the alarm goes off. The stupid app will play through both the phone AND the speaker?!!?! It's even more jarring and annoying to deal with and the functionality of the original alarm function was PERFECT! It's been like 3+ years since they switched over and the stupid double output thing is STILL an issue, PLUS, no volume ramp!
